Top 10 Universities in South Africa

Jul 2 '16 | By La Afrique Media | Views: 598 | Comments: 0

South Africa is known to have some of the best universities in Africa. Search any global university ranking and you’re likely to find at least two or three South African universities listed. There are many that don’t make the cut but we at Africa.com believe that South Africa offers world-class learning experiences—so much so that they are sought out by other African students and thousands from abroad.

***NOTE: We made a determination to create two distinct lists: a) Africa, excluding South Africa, and b) South Africa. If we were not to have made this distinction, our Top 10 List would be dominated by South African universities, and would not be useful to those seeking a pan-African perspective.
